We hope we can answer your questions here. If the information is not mentioned here, please contact us.
Q: What soccer association are you part of?
A: In 2018, Dinmore Bushrats was accepted into the QCSA – Queensland Christian Soccer Association. We are very thankful for their support in helping us get back on the field.
Q: What age groups do you cater for?
A: Currently we have a RugRats Program for children aged 3 to 5, then our Juniors begin from Under 6’s through to Under 14’s. Age group is determined on what age your child turns that year from January 1. Eg. if your child turns 7 years old in August 2019, they would be in the Under 7’s Age Group.
Q: Do you have teams for just boys and just girls?
A: Not at the moment. Our teams are mixed, boys and girls. Each season will be different, which is why we encourage you to sign up as soon as registrations open in November the year prior so we can begin to plan. There are opportunities for just boys and girls teams in older junior age groups. If you wish to bring a team to our club, or a bulk number of players, please let us know so we can discuss the options available.
Q: Where & When do you play?
A: Our home ground is located at 66 Riverview Road, in Riverview.
Games are Saturday Morning’s with RugRats from 8am, then main junior’s games from 9am. As with most club sport, there is some travel involved.
Juniors Under 6’s to Under 8’s are in West Division and away games are generally around the Ipswich Region.
Under 9’s and upwards are placed into divisions. The association attempts to keep travel for families to a minimum where possible. In 2018, our Under 11’s travelled (towards Brisbane) as far as Sunnybank and (towards the west) as far as Rosewood.
Q: Where and Which day/s do you train?
A: In 2019, we have applied for Training to be on Wednesday’s at Ebbw Vale Memorial Park. Times will be confirmed closer to Muster Day in March. Training will begin around mid March.
Q: Why don’t you train where you play?
A: At the moment, our home ground does not have a club house, or active lighting facilities. We are still in the rebuilding stages, and all these things take time, money, along with lots of assistance from parents, council and volunteers. The committee is working very hard to set goals within a Strategic Plan. If you would like to assist, please contact us.
Q: What are the costs involved?
A: Season costs include Registration Fees, Uniform (Shorts and Socks). Per Game: Game Fees. Jersey’s remain the property of the club. Other items children will need are Football Boots and Shin Guards
Q: My business would like to sponsor the club, how can we do this?
A: We have various sponsorship packages available, you can email the committee via our sponsors page.
Q: Does the club need any help?
A: YES! We are always looking for volunteers to assist with many things within our club, from the Canteen through to event organisation and roles at home games. You will need a Working with Children Blue Card. If you do not have one, we can help you to apply and submit the application (The application process can take up to 8 weeks).
